Heya! I'm your friendly neighborhood Larsinny, a demon here to keep you updated on the current debacles going on within the site! Okay, maybe not debacles... Anyway! The Endymion Plot, our Third Main Plot, is underway! We also have our sideplot taking place called Junction! If you're a new member looking to join the new plot, you will want to choose Endymion. However, if you're interested in our sideplot, you may also join that one aswell. The choice is ultimately up to you! The Dungeon Master of the Junction plot is CWIS and the DM of the current Endymion plot is Godai and Grantus.

All templates on the site have been updated, and this also includes the rules aswell. When referring to the rules, please disregard any that say "Old" or "Obsolete" as we are no longer using those rules for the Endymion Plot. Oh, don't be mistaken! I love breaking the rules! But in this case, follow them or erasure!

''Upside down...?''

Man, why was there nothing to do? Usually, there was something interesting to be found in the forest quite easily, but today, Cryox was apparently having a bad luck streak since he couldn't really find anything entertaining to occupy himself with. He could have gone venturing out into the other wards of course, but he didn't feel like making the trip right then and there. Maybe some other time. That meant he just had to figure out what to do here and now however. Boredom was not the right way to go.



It was hard when everything was apparently evading him at the moment though. The horned feline would make his way through the forest, hopping from one tree branch to another for the most part, trying to get a better view of the area around him by staying higher above the ground. Nothing like some good sky view....or at least something similar. He couldn't fly, so there was a limit to how high he could get even with his good jumping skills. Nevertheless, at least the hopping about was somewhat enjoyable for a while. Eventually however, he would slow down, pausing on one longer and thicker tree branch as he rolled over, hanging himself off of it by his tails. Stuff did look interesting upside down, that was for sure. ''He....''

Well while one creature was bored and trying to find something interesting to do, another much smaller creature would be fleeing for its life. You see earlier in the day, the little creature was just minding its business looking for small creatures, plants, roots, and nuts to take back to its home. It was a usual task that typically went without a hitch, but today...today it seemed that Lady Fate decided to bring it trouble. Just as it was reaching for a nice sized acorn it could use for various things and had gotten the thing off the branch it was on, its gut picked up the signs of danger before the sound of flapping even reached its ears. Stuffing the acorn under one tiny arm, the small creature made a dive for the ground just as the flapping intensified and the hefty wind of the bird trying to grab it brushed at its back. The wind made navigating a bit harder and forced it to use its wings to land properly on the next branch; however, there was no time for rest. That pesky bird was coming again!

Growling lightly in annoyance, the small creature would push itself from the branch it was on and make its way towards the ground and once it hit the ground it took off running full speed. Using the grass and whatever else it could use, the little creature weaved its way along the shadowy pathways it knew by heart as the threat from above pursued in a noisy fashion. The bird tried its best to grab the creature with its giant stake like claws or peck it with its over sized beak, the impacts on the ground causing small earthquakes for the small creature that kept running as others smaller than it headed into hiding too. Coming to the edge of the grass, it would burst out onto a huge stretch of dirt, surrounded by giant boulders - a small stretch of dirt and rocks to something large, but to this tiny creature a large wasteland. Scrambling across, it would have to contend with sand storms and a bunch of confusion as the bird danced around trying to corner it; however, the creature kept on the move and when it saw an opening it tried to make a run for it, but that is when the bird decided to make a lunge for it. With a small yelp the little creature went down, its legged pinned under the bird’s clawed foot. Looking up at that moving blur that was the bird, the little creature felt its heart beating fast as that shadow began to move into what it knew was a killing strike, but not today… As the bird came down, the little creature moved quickly to place the acorn between itself and the bird. With an impact that shook its body the bird did indeed hit the acorn before promptly jerking its head back, ripping the acorn right of the little creature’s hand!

At first it thought the bird was going to just toss the acorn away, but instead the creature would find itself a bit surprised as the pressure on its leg was released and the bird hopped back. Not exactly sure what was going on due to not being able to see much outside of a shadow hopping about agitated, the little creature figured that maybe the acorn had bought it some time and so wasting any time it would get back to its feet and run as fast it could to a small hole not too far away. It would move through the tunnels for a long while before cautiously poking its head out of a different hole a good distance away from what was almost its tomb. Sniffing the air and listening to the world carefully, the little creature would take in its surroundings some more determining if it was safe or not to come out again. It had no idea that the strange horned cat was dangling off the branch a few feet behind it.

''Poke time?''

Cryox would simply continue swinging on his current branch of choice, for the time being opting to enjoy the simple makeshift swing as there was nothing better to do around the area. It was by far not the perfect activity, and one he had to be careful with, even though it was unlikely the branch would snap due to his low weight, but still. Besides, it would only take so long before he'd start getting at least a little dizzy from being upside down and making movements while in that position. It wasn't something he did often, thus he was obviously not used to it. Being upside down for long stretches of time is not natural for most beings, probably.



Whether he would have gotten sick or not would remain a mystery however, as his attention would soon get drawn away by slight movement just a couple feet in front of him. Huh, what was that? Due to distance and the object...being...whatever...being rather small, the feline couldn't identify it completely, but the shape of what he saw seemed to maybe be some sort of bug? Besides, what else was really small and would be found under the ground? It was definitely not a worm, that much he could tell. Unless it was some weird kind of worm. Nevertheless...normally he would probably not give much mind to a random insect, as they were typically not a great entertainment, and in some cases even annoying to deal with...but he was pretty bored right now so...maybe poking a bug would be more interesting than doing more or less nothing...?



Would it? Well, who knew. That in mind though, Cryox would let himself drop off the branch, maneuvering around to make sure he dropped down on all his fours in a light crouch, doing his best to be as quiet as possibly as to not scare his target away before he even had a chance to do anything. Not that he would really do much besides padding up close to the hole, and trying to poke at the being there with one of his paws lightly.

The little creature would continue to observe the area for little while longer before with a quiet sigh its shoulders would slump in relief. Thank goodness. No more insane bird and hopefully nothing else that could make this otherwise peaceful day into one threatening to give it a heart attack. Feeling a bit more relaxed, the little creature was on the edge of pulling itself out of the whole when from behind something touched it. While the poke might have been light to the user, to the little creature it more like a light shove. So while it did move it and cause it to have to reach out and hold onto the ground for support, the small creature didn’t stay in one spot as it quickly ducked back into the hole for a moment debating about running elsewhere; however, it wouldn’t as it considered the scent it had caught. That scent wasn’t normal. It was a mix of animal and something else, but what it could not tell. Curious it would cautiously peek out of the whole again this time facing the direction of the poker. It would try to figure out what was before it, but the thing was too close to make a shape out clearly, so the little creature took a chance as came up a tad bit more sniffing quietly at the air.

“Umm...Yes?” it would say its voice cute and small, but surprising loud enough to hear to the one it called out. At least this way the creature could determine if what it was dealing with was hostile or not. Maybe.

''Talking bug...?''

Well, he wasn't really poking the little guy with force there, and he wasn't even really heave himself, thus it wouldn't be a very strong push so there ought to be no real harm done. After all, it wasn't like the feline was trying to outright squish the bug. That would have been a very quick end to the adventure, that's for sure. Blinking a bit, Cryox would sit down as the little one ducked down into the hole, wondering whether it was going to just disappear somewhere or not. If it did...then oh well, since he couldn't exactly follow. He could sure try to dig, but that was heavy work, and would take too long for him to see results from his effort. By the time he'd dig deeper in, a bug would obviously be long gone.



Surprisingly enough though, it decided to come back out? Huh, a curious insect then? He would have almost thought that it was more likely that such a small thing would simply run for its life at any sign of possible danger. It's too late once you're trapped after all. What was even more unexpected however, was the fact that it actually spoke. Oh. So that's probably why it didn't just run. It wasn't one of those typical mindless bugs one normally sees everywhere. ''A talking bug! That's kinda cool.'' The feline would swish his tails slightly.

The smaller creature would try to take in the large shape before it leaning back and trying to get a grasp of the outline. It could see it was something that looked like a four legged animal sitting, the head had ears that were pointed, but something else there and what was that? The little creature's head would tilt as it saw something thin swishing behind the creature. Two things? Those didn't move like worms and they were way too long, so tails? Hmm. Two tails? How peculiar.

The little creature would let out a small "hmm" as it tapped its chin with a small finger a bit distracted by trying to put it all together, but would find its puzzle shattering when said thing actually spoke. Welp it most certainly wasn't just some odd beast being curious that is for sure. Beasts didn't talk.

"Yes, Tycho can talk just like you, but what and who are you?" the little creature would ask before leaning forward and reaching out towards the creature. It would gesture what its small hand for it to come closer, but whether or not the creature would let it touch it was another matter. Either way the little creature showed no fear and showed it was maybe even bold...or just didn't care about danger enough to be paranoid all the time. There was that possibility too.

''Huh?''

The horned feline would blink when an odd question came his way. What was he? It was unusual to hear someone ask that kind of question, since his appearance usually told people what they needed to know, unless they were the type to be interested in exact specifics and all that, which honestly didn't happen often. He would scratch his ear with one of his paws as he puzzled over the strange opening question for a moment, opting to give an answer of sorts soon after nevertheless. ''You can call me Cryox. What do you mean by what I am though?'' That said, he didn't really get what the point of the motioning was either, but it wasn't like he had a problem with bugs, and had already poked this one a short while ago, so he would do as asked and move a bit closer, kind of curious about the meaning of all this.

“Cryox, huh. Well Tycho will remember that,” the little bug said in friendly tones before it was reaching out towards the shadow that surprisingly moved closer after posing its question. To this the little creature chuckled lightly as it leaned forward to reach out and touch the shadow. It’s hand would meet a soft somewhat wet item. Oh the nose! Alright, but it wasn’t like a dog nose though. Hmm.

The bug would gently pat around the nose and move outward towards the cheeks meeting strange strings and softness. Whiskers and fur! As the little bug explored the face gently with its hands it would answer the question posed. “Tycho meant exactly what we asked. We do not see in the normal way you see, so we have other ways to make out our world.” The little bug would pet the creature a bit more before pulling itself out of the hole and then with a spreading of its “cape” it would unfold its wings to fly upward a bit to touch the triangles. Yup those were ears alright, but those other triangles what were those? The little bug hummed as it circled behind the creature and took note of the two thinner shadows. Okay a tail...or perhaps two, but why? The bug would scratch its head as it came back to the front and landed on the ground beside the hole. It would place its hands on its hips as it tilted its head at the other a bit. “Hmm. You be a cat yes? But if so, why do you have more than one set of ears or tails? You not a normal cat are you?” Well the creature was indeed curious as to what it found. A talking being that was a cat, but wasn’t a cat? What on earth was that it then?

''Sooo much poke...''

''Neeeh, it would be sad if I got forgotten so fast.'' Well, maybe he wouldn't mind too much, as it was possible he would never really meet the bug again after they parted here. Even more so since it was so small. Small things go unnoticed very easily. And being too small apparently also makes for awkward touching moments. Normally, one doesn't want anything insect sized all over them after all, so this was kind of odd. For now though, Cryox wouldn't back up as he blinked while being poked and patted around.


Huh...''Are you saying you're blind then?'' Well...that would explain it at the very least. Though, can one really tell for sure by touch? Any animal could have fur and the like, and especially here in Junction...it didn't even have to be a commonly known animal, or have the shape of one. Sounded like quite a hassle of a life. ''Horns, not ears. Why so surprised though? This place has way weirder beings living here anyway.'' He was technically pretty close to normal still, with the assumptions that cats were considered normal of course. Unlike some creatures that were just completely out there....

"It would be a headache to try and recall that which is forgotten. This is why Tycho remember well." Nothing was worse than meeting someone, leaving and then meeting them again and having to start the whole introduction process again in a way due to the fact a name or some form of detail was missing. Regardless of that, the creature before it was a good subject. The cat thing allowed the small bug to explore what it was, not running or trying to harm it while it did its things. The smaller bug appreciated this and when it was done, it would settle before the other and give a small bow. “Thank you for letting Tycho invade your space.” It would say politely and then hearing the question posed it would hum as its arms folded and a hand went to its chin.

“Blind. Yes, Tycho is blind in the normal sense of the word and yet not blind all at once.” Yes it couldn’t use its eyes and its world was shadows mostly; however, it had other ways to “see” its world, its other senses plugged in well enough to the world. While it may seem strange, the data bank that was its brain had filed various scents, feelings, tastes, sounds, and shapes within to help it deduce from what it knew whether something was familiar or so bizarre it had to make whole new bank to define it. Yes the little bug was indeed strange, but what worked for it worked.

“Oh horns and two tails then. How amusing,” the little bug said with a chuckle and then shaking its head it would continue. “We are not surprised more amused at what we have found. Junction does indeed have things stranger than you. For example the elusive elephant fairy. We found it once, but have yet to find it again, but we know it is here. And when we do find it, we can catalog its data too!” the little bug said with a chuckle of excitement and then catching itself it would look to the side a bit sheepishly as a hand moved to rub at its skeletal antenna. “Hehe. Sorry, we just get to enthusiastic about our work,” it would say as it moved towards the cat and then slipped into the space between the leg and the body it before sticking its head out from behind the cat’s left leg as it sniffed at the world around them, its hand gently touching the leg for support. “Say Cryox. What do you do for fun hmm?” The creature would say for now not seeming to understand that what it was doing was probably a bad idea since the cat was a stranger. Welp...that happened.
